Glenn Camp bikepacking trip, October 2012

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

We had another great trip on the bike trail next to the west fork of the San Gabriel River. It’s close and easy, yet feels hundreds of miles away from LA. Glenn Camp is a great base to ride up to Cogswell Reservoir, and hike to the Glenn Canyon Falls, so we did both. Even though it rained on Sunday morning, the reservoir and the falls were trickles of their normal selves. Boys had a great time building the campfire and riding their bikes all over the camp. They also learned to watch out for all the beautiful but nasty poison oak! We had a good ride back down the trail, and even passed a county rescue team practicing their rope techniques for canyon rescues in the same spot we scrambled up the day before.
